A large exhibition of works by the elusive street artist, Banksy will go in display in a posh Mayfair art gallery.
Banksy’s original gallerist Steve Lazarides and his Lazinc co-founder Wissam Al Mana, will showcase a collection of Banksy’s most iconic images.
The exhibition is curated from a number of high-profile private collections to build a ‘Greatest Hits’ body of secondary market works, including stencilled canvases, unique paintings, sculptures and limited-edition prints, a number of which have not been exhibited in public previously.
There are no literal street pieces in the collection and all works were commercially acquired by their owners.
Currently, no public museums or institution in the UK currently include Banksy’s work within permanent collections, so this is a chance to see some of his work in a gallery setting, as opposed to behind protective sheeting on a street around the UK.
The exhibition, at Lazinc runs from 12th July to 25 August and will be free to visit. The gallery, on Sackville Street, Mayfair is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 6pm.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
